CHARMING LOG CABIN ON BIG CREEK. DOG FRIENDLY. 10 MINUTES TO DOWNTOWN HIGHLANDS

Highlands Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 9 comfortably.

Welcome to Log Cabin on Big Creek. You and your family will be very comfortable in our creek-side mountain rental log cabin located in beautiful Highlands, North Carolina. Our cabin is very unique because it sits right next to a very large creek. From both porches you look right down into the water. We have high-speed internet with WiFi and BlueRay. You will enjoy our secluded location off a private gravel road. The only sounds you'll hear while sitting in our large screened-in porch are the rushing of water from the creek, wind in the trees, and if you're lucky, a trout reaching for a mayfly. The cabin sits at an altitude of over 3,800 ft. so the temperature is at least 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta and there is relatively little humidity! There are wonderful hikes throughout the Highlands/Cashiers area to be enjoyed year round. After your hike you’ll enjoy a soak in our jetted tub. If you're looking for a pet-friendly vacation, you've come to the right spot. We consider all pets except cats.

No Smoking: We have a strict no smoking policy in the cabin. If you smoke outside the cabin please field strip cigarettes and throw the butts in the garbage.

We are very good about keeping the availability calendar up to date.

Pets: We accept dogs that don't tear-up the house and landscaping, however, there is an additional $25.00 charge, per dog, for interior clean-up and a $100 refundable deposit. Please do your best to pick-up after your dog outside. Please don't leave your dogs in the cabin unattended for long periods of time. Cats are not allowed under any circumstances as the owner is very allergic! Other pets are okay with prior approval. Finally, although our cabin is pet friendly we are not flea friendly! In consideration of all our renters, please make sure your dogs are free of fleas or you will be charged to get rid of them.

Seasons: There is a lot to do all year round in the Highlands/Cashiers area. Off season can be the best time if you like the many hiking trails all to yourself. Leaf Season is spectacular. We often get snow in the winter to be prepared with a 4-wheel drive or chains.

GREAT FAMILY FRIENDLY CABIN

  • 4 of 5
This cabin was charming, comfortable and welcoming for our quick family get-away. The kids loved playing in the creek (well supervised, of course) and we kept the fire roaring.

The owners could not have been more concerned for our welfare and enjoyment! We plan to return very soon.

OUTSTANDING IN EVERY RESPECT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed this cabin in late August 2013. We found that the posted pictures of the property did not do it justice. The cabin is clean, well appointed and the kitchen is more than adequately equipped - according to my wife. All I noticed was the fact that this cabin is paradise for a porch sitter. Perch on the lower deck and be close to Big Creek or sit on the upper, screened in porch and still be close to the creek and also have a great view and a cool breeze - and still be able to see and hear the creek. If you desire a change of scenery from those two porches then sit on the front porch and enjoy the wildflowers if your visit is in the summer. It was too warm for a fire during our visit - if you consider low 70's during the day high temps - but the stone fireplace was large enough to burn railroad ties were it possible to load them on the andirons.The fireplace is unique and should circumstances allow we will be back when cold weather will permit a shin burner.

The cabin is secluded but not remote. Highlands is a delightful little town and we enjoyed trying a few of the restaurants, but for the most part the cabin was too nice to leave for any extended period.

Guests must negotiate a few stairs to reach the living area and a few more to reach the master bedroom but this should not be a problem for most folks.

This cabin has to be one of the most unique in the Highlands area and we would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family.

PEACEFUL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
we had such an incredible vacation here this summer that we just had to come back for thanksgiving. Quiet mountain retreat just minutes from highlands. spent some great times on the porch listening to the water flowing. The climate was delightful over 100 at home and in the 70's on the porch.The fire was awesome during thanksgiving. I can highly recommend this for either a romantic or family vacation.

FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was even better than the pictures. Great layout, perfect setting, the stream was icing on the cake. Plenty to do and see for my wife and I, two teenage girls. two 9 yr old boys and our black lab. We will definitely come back, would like to try a weekend when the weather is warm.

QUIET IN THE WOODS

  • 4 of 5
The location of this cabin was absolutley ideal. You will be totally surrounded by nature and the outdoors. The creek outside the two decks makes a very peaceful bubbling sound that is quite relaxing. The cabin is very cozy and the fireplace kept it very snug with the thermostat on 60. If you are willing to explore there is a nice waterfall down the creek from the house a few hundred yards. This cabin has the calming effects of the outdoors with the comforts of town about 3 miles away. I almost forgot the leaves were spectacular.

SUMMER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Cabin was great,quiet and peaceful. Our teenagers acted like kids and played in the creek. In the day we hiked the trails near by like Glen Falls. It was beautiful. We also loved the shopping on Main in Highland. At night we had killer dart game matches... (We lost) My husband said it was the peaceful get away he was hoping for. Thanks for sharing your cabin. PS our dog loved it too.
